257And behold, a 8lawyer stood up to 9put him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to 10inherit eternal life?"
He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How do you read it?"27
And he answered, 11"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and 12your neighbor as yourself."
And he said to him, "You have answered correctly; 13do this, and you will live."29
But he, 14desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
Jesus replied, "A man 15was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead.31Now by chance a 16priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.32So likewise 17a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
